Latest rumor is a June 21st opening for Star Wars land at Disneyland. Disneyland also has upped their prices and added more blackout dates accordingly. For the price of a premier pass, you can buy three Jabba's sail barges.

Galaga aliens steal your ship. You can shoot the thief to get double shots.

Interesting information from Barron's. Thanks to Ken Coates for pointing this out! - By Jack Hough (Barron's)

* This is talking about the Disneyland version

Barron’s recently spent an afternoon touring Galaxy’s Edge—a first for the press this late in construction—with executives from construction, operations, and “imagineering,” or creative design, along with a Star Wars expert in a holiday R2-D2 sweater. Here are some scattered notes from that visit, including previously unreported details, some of which might be subject to change.

(1) Visitors will enter Galaxy’s Edge through one of three entrances near the park’s Fantasyland, Frontierland, and Critter Country themed areas, with the expansion turning what are now dead ends into a circuitous route.

(2) Building exteriors in Galaxy’s Edge are designed to look weathered from the first day of completion

(3) Galaxy’s Edge will open in Disneyland this summer, perhaps by early June. (not confirmed!)

(4) At the Disneyland site, there are about 600 workers now, down from a peak of 1,000 to 1,100. During our visit, one team was preparing to weld joints and seams to cover screw heads on the Millennium Falcon, which was recently assembled from the contents of 93 crates. Another was lifting an ornamental radar dish to a control tower. Another was attending to the ceiling in Oga’s.

(5) Access to the construction site is strictly controlled; some key executives say their family members haven’t been able to visit. Laborers are told background stories of the areas they build to help instill pride in the work.

(6) For real trees, a team of horticulturalists has taken pains to choose and obtain—and protect—particular species. One sign for the crew on a potted tree awaiting transplanting read, “The cost to replace this tree is $9,000. Please respect all trees and keep this area clean.”

Millennium Falcon : Smuggler's Run
(1) The attraction entrance will be subtly marked, so as not to disrupt the look of the land.

(2) Visitors will fly the ship in groups of six, and see the real-time results of their actions, such as knocking over a spire during takeoff. The flight will be different each visit.

Rise of the Resistance (ROTR)
(1) Visitors waiting in line for this attraction will wind through highly themed interiors that evoke rundown rooms the Resistance has repurposed as a base for operations against the First Order.

(2) Groups of guests might be “captured” at one point and ordered along by the enemy, before making their escape aboard a trackless troop transport.

Oga's Cantina
(1) Oga’s is relatively small for aesthetic reasons, and is likely to be popular. To maximize capacity and keep visits from becoming all-afternoon affairs, most guests will stand.

(2) There will be a handful of booths with seating around the outer edge of the restaurant; no decision has been made yet on whether or how these can be reserved.

(3) We heard a mention of a "Fuzzy Tauntaun", named for the furry snow lizards ridden in Empire Strikes Back, although it’s unclear if that’s a hypothetical drink or a planned one, and the menu is still being decided.

Other Retail
(1) Shops will be supplied from a common stockroom, and restaurants from a common kitchen, to increase efficiency.

(2) One shop will feature droids that visitors can customize through an interactive experience. A droid that is made to be, say, afraid of stormtroopers might signal its fear when one comes close. Droids owned by members of the same group might recognize each other when they meet. Prices have not been set. The shop might also sell a full-size R2-D2 for well-heeled fans, perhaps costing thousands.

(3) There will be another shop presided over by Dok-Ondar, a collector who is briefly mentioned in Solo. This character, likely animatronic.

Saw wave 1 of those at Walmart Saturday. They were put no where near the star wars section. The price is way too much for them.

I'm offended by Walmart's latest commercials.

Best and only toy shop it should say.

Ken Berry will be missed.

Of course everyone forgets about President George Bush senior will be buried today.

I see it as no big loss. They always had about five figures on sale at a time. It was next to impossible to buy something because it is instantly sold out.
